The power outages from this storm have forced thousands of people out of their homes across the Sioux Empire and a lot of those people are seeking shelter at local hotels.
Many hotels in Sioux Falls have been at full capacity since Tuesday night.
Karel Sejnoha and her family haven't had power since Tuesday.
They braved one night in the cold. Then after calling a few hotels, they found rooms at the downtown Holiday Inn on Wednesday. She says her grandkids have been having fun with this mini vacation but she's ready to get back in her home.
The general manager at the Holiday Inn says they aren't full yet for Thursday... He says many people are hoping their power gets turned back on.
